The Black Knight of Arabel

Your party is sent to investigate allegations of Netherese activity near Arabel: a dark rider commanding legions of shadow.

Can you turn back the tide before
it’s too late?

I bring you another Living Forgotten Realms adventure/campaign.

I’m going to start with 'CORM1-1 - The Black Knight of Arabel' and, if things progress well, continue with other modules set in and around the Sea of Fallen Stars.

See the Game Description for application process and requirements and feel free to ask any questions you may have in this thread or via pm.

I’ll start this after the delve I am currently running is finished. The party has just started their last encounter and it’s a hard one (I hope). So I expect that to take a couple of weeks or so. I’ll post a closing date at least three days before I choose the final makeup of the party. I may choose a few characters early which will allow others a chance to adjust their characters to suit the party.

Finally I would like to thank Geekahedron and Deran for starting this and getting me interested in LFR.

Game Description:

An RPGA-sanctioned Living Forgotten Realms Campaign based in and around the Sea of Fallen Stars.

Each module will be an official LFR module though I will be making minor adjustments as per the allowed guidelines to suit the adventures to the party. There will be no major changes to any NPC’s or Plot lines and the rewards and rules will be official.

Me. Long time roleplayer and dungeon/game master. Have already run a couple of LFR games here and plan to run more. I also ran a few dungeon delves and am DMing a long running FR campaign which is the only public game for those interested in checking out my style. Each game is ran slightly differently with me being more strict with formatting for the LFR games.

Each party will consist of five to six characters that are either newly created using the official RPGA Creation Guidelines for LFR adventurers or are already level 1 or 2 LFR characters. As I write this the current guidelines are version 1.9 and are available from the character creation page reachable via the RPGA LFR homepage.

I’ll am looking for characters that will work well together and be fun to play with.

Please format your application as set out below. If you need assistance with the formatting open the spoiler below and copy the example template there.

I would like to see two or three paragraphs for each of the three sections (100-200 words each), if you want to expound on your characters background further please wait till you are in character as there will be opportunity for you to do just that. Following my application formatting guidelines to the letter is a sure way to improve your chances of being chosen.

If you also include a little about yourself, such as roleplaying experience and posting frequency, it won’t go unnoticed. I would also be interested to hear about any LFR experience you already have. Also if you are bringing in an existing LFR character details on their previous adventures and treasure bundles will be essential.

Myth-Weavers Character Sheet:
For the game I would like to see a completed Myth-Weavers character sheet will all class, racial and feats described in the notes section. I am fine with you using either list tags or OOC tags. All powers should also have their mechanics listed out ideally along with final bonuses for whatever weapon you are using. Please also make sure the sheet is set public or at least viewable by me.

Here are two of my characters, the first with his notes as a large list, the second using OOC tags. Neither are 1st level so they have rather a lot more notes than a beginning character would have but I think they get the idea across. Feel free to copy any of the formatting or come up with your own. As long as it's easily understandable it'll be fine.

Posting Requirements:
I am looking for a reasonably fast posting rate such as one to two posts weekdays and one post weekends. The average post does not have to be lengthy (ie two to three paragraphs of around 100 words total would be good) but they do need to show your character’s personality and should respond to other characters as much as the environment.

I understand occasionally people will be unable to post for a certain period of time, holidays, sickness and such forth. But I do ask that you give as much notice beforehand or as soon as possible and I will endeavor to do the same if I will be unable to post for any length of time.

Also check out my formatting requirements here.

Also need to join the game and add your character to it. Check your private messages.
Two Weapon Defense comes with Tempest Technique

One feat is a Tempest thing, and musta messed up my math a bit on the items, my bad. I'll redo it. And yes, Windrise still, likely gonna end up with two multiclass feats before this is all done, as a result of Windrise.

Edit: Alright, fixed it up, it was the short swords which put me over pretty bad.

K.. Looks a lot better.. still think only meant to have 9 gp left and you need to update your character sheet so it shows your background and remove the short swords from there. Also can you add the character to the game.

EDIT: Humm.. looks like you been updating your stat block manually. What you should do is copy all that information into the notes section on the character sheet and then copy the statblock here for application. and then use [sb=show][/sb] in the game threads when they are opened.

Still needs a bit more. Take a look at some of the other applications that have been marked as complete or complete+ to get an idea what I am looking for. Essentially I want to see a character/player that is going to bring interest and something special to the adventure, not just be there to solve a few problems and beat up a couple of monsters. You got a good start there, just need to take it a bit further.

Also following my formatting guidelines exactly will do a lot to impress me

Edit: you also need to address the other concerns I listed above when I checked your character to make it a legal character.

Yeah, it was a fairly rush job when I was editing, just wanted to get the statblock right and then fix up the sheet. Thanks, though, should be right, I believe.

I think you might be going overboard on the weapons just a tad. You do get to keep any additional gold left over and eventually you will have the opportunity to purchase things between levels.

Also as I calculate it that works out as having one gold left. Also if you copy the stuff you have under 'Background & Other Notes' and put it as is minus the notes heading in the 'Conditional Modifiers, Resistances & Action Points Note' section near the top of the character sheet it will automatically be added to your statblocks.

Then the only thing you need to do is add it to the my game from your sheets view. Once that is done you can test it is working by adding [sb=show][/sb] at the bottom of your first post (under the Background spoiler) in the Characters section.
